22oz bottle, indeterminate bottling date. Thanks Tyler. Poured into a GLBC snifter today, 5/1/2014.
A- Clear and light orange-copper body, two finger white head with good retention, no lacing. Pretty typical appearance for a DIPA.
S- Smells interesting actually; a nice bready caramel malt backbone is supplemented very well by a solid tangerine and papaya nose. Not super complex, but this is a nicely balanced nose and is certainly interesting.
F- Unfortunately, the nose doesn't translate to the palate. It's got some papaya and tropical fruit, but the malt backbone kind of falls behind here. It's quite bitter with a relatively non-descript hop contribution, though you do get a little bit of tropical fruit.
M- Quite bitter, medium bodied and carbonated well enough. But the bitterness is too much for the relative lack of hop flavours on the palate.
O- I expected more based on the nose, it just ended up being too bitter for what you'd expect based on the nose. A weird beer in that manner, as you can usually tell how much hops you'll taste when you smell it. But this is a beer that smells quite a bit better than it tastes.

Out of a bottle and into tbe baby Almanac snifter.
Like that moment when you ring the door bell of a first date after meeting her during a drunken Saturday prior.
Meh. Not ugly, but not what you hoped for. And smell and taste follow suit. It's not a bad date, but it just wasn't what you were hoping for. A bit too bitter, too flat, too bland.
Getting better. But Raul still isn't tripping.

Bottled 05/06/14, 10% ABV. Hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Centennial & Columbus.
Appearance: Clear, polished copper body with a clinging white head.
Smell: Big fruity hops - stone fruit, tropical fruit. Floral notes. Fairly sweet as well, but not excessively - the malt accentuates the fruitier aspects of the hop profile without contributing much actual grain aroma. This is on the verge of being too malty, without crossing that line; instead the malt is complementary to the hops.
Palate: Juicy apricot, pineapple, mango; just all-around juicy. On the sweeter side, without much bitterness, yet the malt is reigned-in just enough that it doesn't come across as cloying. Medium-bodied, perhaps leaning toward full. It's an easy drinker for the heft. The substantial malt backbone does a great job of highlighting the fruitier aspect of the hop bill. Thankfully there's no grain character here, or astringency from the crystal malt.
Overall: My first beer from this new brewery, and I'm pretty impressed. Looking forward to trying more from them.
